WR Villamin makes call to Oregon State

7/10/2012

After a recent visit to Oregon State, wide receiver Jordan Villamin (Etiwanda, Calif./Etiwanda) decided he had enough information to make a decision. On Tuesday, Villamin announced his commitment to the Beavers, over offers from Eastern Washington, Northern Colorado and Utah.

"The coaches made me feel at home and the players did too," Villamin said. "The environment was really great and my mom enjoyed it, too."

Villamin said the announcement had plenty to do with his relationship with the coaching staff, but another commitment also played a role, as wide receiver Victor Bolden (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Los Osos) joined the Oregon State class late last week. The two are very good friends and have been talking about playing for the same program. Villamin -- 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds -- said the two are looking forward to utilizing their different physical skills as they match up with opposing defenses.

"We've been talking about it a lot, getting Victor in the slot against the linebackers and me outside on smaller defensive backs," Villamin said. "It's a mismatch."

Villamin caught 27 passes for 594 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior. He said he will continue to explore the recruiting process if additional schools step forward with offers before signing day, but added that at this point, he's excited to commit to what he called a good fit in Oregon State. Villamin is commitment No. 3 for Oregon State's 2013 recruiting class.
